My crap
4th-Dec-2005 11:17 pm

take 2 on a bowl. started with flate plate of blue, and based upon comments from the gallery (yes you epinoid ;) , i placed cane upon the top of the glass. i know i should have fused the wole lot 1st, however being the sui that i am, i am rushing processes - this bloody takes 8 + hrs to simply get the below result!

a rough and nasty piece, it isn't fused nicely, it slumped to one side, but, is display more 'bowl like qualities' than the previous attempts :)

i didn't take it as high as the last pieces, which is kinda interesting to see how molded it is at the base. there's also a lip, where the glass stuck to the top of the stainless steel bowl. it came loose very eaily however, but a respray of the mold will ensure.

looking forward to you comments on this i understand this is crap. but i happy as i regard this as proof i need to fix my kiln, so it's worth my while fixing the kiln. :)

This may be a silly question, but what are the little white bits?

little bits of white cane. they are meant to sink in and have made it look pretty. as i didn't get the glass hot enough they didn't (sink in).

all the edges are nice and smooth tho!

I liked the first pieces better. *sheepish blush* I haven't done much fusing yet, so was more commenting based on stuff I have read or watched other folks do. Every time I have seen a fused piece that looked really nifty they used at least two fusings if not more. I think you are seeing how much easier it is to place things in the flat but then there is a tradeoff losing the more fluidy effects. Most important thing is have fun (and use enough of kiln wash).

I keep meaning to ask - what is the origin of sui?

i also liked the other pieces better ;)

this was purely scrap glass melted to see what happened. result - it melted, but not fully ;)

'sui' is just a nickname i ended up with after my teenage years. *shrug*

It looks like you are on the right tram. I know about a postage stamp worth about glass but my suggestions are, do all the steps and fix the kiln. If your tools are crap, it will reflect on the finished product. (I know they say only a poor workman blames his tools, that is because good workmen know the value of good tools and maintin them)
